3 Men Deported From Saudi Arabia For Being Too Handsome


Three men were booted out of because they were deemed “too handsome” by religious authorities who worried that women would become attracted to them.

Sitting in the stands as delegates from the United Arab Emirates at the Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival in Riyad on Sunday, nothing seemed to be with the men in question but that didn’t stop the mutaween, Saudi Arabia’s religious police, from charging in and hauling the men , according to Arabic language newspaper Elaph.

“A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the newspaper reported.

Saudi Arabia is an extremely conservative Sunni Muslim country and prohibits women from interacting with men who aren’t their relatives.
